Welcome to the April issue of Equalize!
In this issue, we discuss the CNIB Foundation's Ontario Budget Ask. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is unclear when the Ontario Budget will be announced. We talk to Jacob Charendoff about a complaint he filed with the Ontario Human Rights Commission, and we learn more about The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Robyn Rennie tells us about her passion for making art accessible, and Bernard Akuoko shares his story about growing up with sight loss as a young black man. We also hear from an advocate in Northern Ontario about his advocacy journey for accessible pedestrian signals.
